Twenty One Minute Pieces is a variety performance for four musicians, in which a number of largely disconnected and disparate musical episodes are presented to the audience in various space and in many different styles. It contains music that may be familiar to some listeners, and music which may not be, and a number of the pieces contained within the work are influenced partially or entirely by existing pieces and musicians from the past and present. - Robin Haigh
